Reygate II
Reygate II has been gradually restored over the last 15 years with the emphasis on sturdiness and reliability rather than smartness! An interior makeover would be desirable but has not been a priority. The owner, Brian Woolven (07717 824299) is in his 70s and wishes to see the boat go to someone who can continue the work of tidying her up and keeping this historic vessel viable. She is strong and sturdy, mechanically very good and comes to life when she gets under way. She has a lot of history, including 2 trips to Dunkirk but now needs further TLC!
She is in dry dock at the moment for a bottom paint.
Owning this boat is an ongoing affair and needs someone practical to take care of her.
She is in Beacon boatyard, Rochester (ME13HS). please ring Brian (number above) or Dave Small on 07866 553415 to arrange a viewing.
Asking price in the region of £10,000

The Dunkirk Little Ship, Glala, is a classic 78' motor yacht built before the First World War. Beam 13’. Displacement 51 tons. Teak on oak construction. Further works were carried out in the 1920’s by Camper & Nicholsons. She bears the flags of the National Historic Fleet (No.1998) and the Association of Dunkirk Little Ships.
Glala was built by A.R. Luke & Sons in the Hamble (Lloyds Register No. 144471). Glala is now partially restored and looking for a new owner. The large engine room houses twin Gardner 6LXB engines, refurbished, in place, but not installed. Internal layout plans are available for a galley, heads and berths for 8; the cabin headroom is a substantial 7' 6" that will afford an open feel to the ship once completed. The beautiful 2" teak decks are already in place and all fixtures and fittings stripped off and set aside. This is a fabulous and probably a one off opportunity to own a striking and historic vessel and as such Glala richly deserves the opportunity to cruise the seas once again. Further photographs are available on request.
Guide price £100,000
